Vitamin D is an essential nutrient that your body needs to maintain optimal health, but research suggests that anywhere from 40-85% of Americans are deficient in vitamin D.
Deficiency is frequently caused by a number of risk factors such as spending less time outdoors, using sunscreen, living in areas with little sunlight, and having a darker skin tone.
Spending time in the sun might be one of the best ways to naturally get vitamin D, but with summer around the corner, you might risk getting sunburns or overexposing yourself to excessive UV rays while trying to get some vitamin D.
Vitamin D is not readily available in most food sources, which is why many people don't get enough of it. But don't fret, you can easily receive your daily dose of vitamin D with Chief Originals Vitamin D3 5000 IU (125 mcg) the world's first glyphosate-tested vitamin D3 capsules from a renewable, natural source.

What is vitamin D and how
can it benefit your body?
Vitamin D is a unique fat-soluble vitamin that's often called the “sunshine vitamin” because it is naturally produced by the cholesterol in your skin cells when your skin is exposed to sunlight.
The sun's ultraviolet B (UVB) rays interact with the cholesterol, providing the energy for vitamin D synthesis to occur. Skin that has more melanin tends to block UVB rays which facilitate the production of vitamin D in the skin. This is why people with darker skin pigmentation are at higher risk of vitamin D deficiency.
As an essential vitamin, vitamin D plays vital roles throughout your body to keep you strong and healthy. Some of the many health benefits it provides include supporting healthy bone, brain, and immune system function, as well as uplifting your mood.
There are 2 types of vitamin D: D2 and D3. Vitamin D3 is generally regarded as superior, since it is the form that most closely resembles the one your body naturally produces. You can increase your vitamin D intake by eating foods that are rich in vitamin D and by taking vitamin D3 supplements.

Signs of vitamin D deficiency
Getting sick often
Vitamin D plays a role in strengthening your immune system. Without sufficient vitamin D, your immune system may not function at its best.
A deficiency in vitamin D can manifest itself in many ways, most notably:
Low levels of vitamin D may suppress your energy levels and leave you with a general feeling of malaise.
Studies have shown that people with low levels of vitamin D are often at much higher risk of feeling down.
Unusually slow healing
of minor cuts and wounds
Another sign of vitamin D deficiency may be impaired wound healing. That's because vitamin D plays a role in the body's natural healing process.
Suffering from chronic bone and back pain
Vitamin D supports healthy bones by improving your body's absorption of calcium. Signs of inadequate vitamin D in the blood may include lower back pain, but check with your naturopathic physician for a full diagnosis.
